Vivo RGBW Array Sensor – Vivo Vision+
What other new technology can be tossed around for cell phone photography? At today’s Vivo imaging and media conference, Vivo announced that it will launch a new original part of the Vivo RGBW array sensor, which increases the sensor’s sensitivity by 160% on sensors that use the RGBW array.

For mobile phone photography, the amount of light entering is a decisive factor for image quality. The size of the sensor, the area of a single pixel, and the sensitivity of the light are affected by the amount of light entering.
Huawei mobile phone night scene photography powerful an important factor is the RYYB array, claimed to be 40% more than the traditional array of sensors to improve the amount of light intake, can improve the performance of low-light photography.
Vivo’s RGBW array sensor on display this time isn’t the first time it’s been used, and it was used on the 2015 Huawei P8 phone with a 13-megapixel RGBW sensor that removed the traditional array’s green filter and dramatically improved the light-sensitivity capability. The 13-megapixel RGBW sensor was claimed at the time to improve the brightness of photos by 32% (high contrast) and reduce low-light conditions by 78% color noise.
Vivo RGBW array sensor is supposed to be a new development, claiming a 160% increase in light intake, which is more powerful than a regular sensor. The main reason why the previous RGBW array sensor was short-lived was that the colors would be missing, but Vivo should be able to compensate and improve the color issues through algorithms this time, after all, 5 years have passed and the RGBW sensor isn’t the same.
It just might not be possible to wait for this RGBW sensor this year, as Vivo says it will launch a phone using RGBW technology in the second half of the year 2021.
